Regardless of the outcome,Steven, you've already been successful in exposing the corrupt nature of those who sacrifice values for a paycheck.Has it ever been different?I'd be wary of new parishioners approaching you with radical suggestions. Conspiracy setups are not unheard of.Prayers for you and your family.
I'll be praying.Raani
Wow - the prosecution is opening the door for the presentation of the Gospel in court - amazing. God has placed you in a postion of great influence - this case is more than a violation of American rights - it is a global platform for the Word of God. At the same time that the enemy has given SKM a platform in NYC (for evil) - the Lord has raised you up to speak for Him. Our Hall of Faith heroes were often brought to a place of influence by means that were "challenging". Hosea, Paul, Peter - and many others all walked a path that was hard - but it was God's path for His work. Be wise and Spirit filled - I will pray for you.Blessings,Patti
The "justice" we get in this country never ceases to amaze me. His preaching has nothing to do with the fact that a bunch of sick freaks beat him almost to death.Which by the way had NOOOOOO clue he is a pastor. Pastor A. preaching the truth about our sick horribe, wicked, perverted president and standing up for what is right is going to be evidence??? What in the world. OOhhh I am mad. Well I will be praying for you all. THe Lord will see this through. I hope you are all feeling His peace and not letting fear creep in. We love you guys!!!!Jessica
If I lived in USA, I would come for this trial. Good luck there, I'm with You.
Praying. What does your attorney say about the subpoena?
I think so highly of the pastor and Mrs. Anderson. I'm shocked by this latest news. Our legal system keeps going further awry. A family here last month was ordered by CASA and a judge they are not allowed any other people in their home yet CASA/DCFS is to make unannounced inspections 3 times a week! Fear God, not man or what man can do to one's body. I really want to come to the court dates and support Pastor Anderson but I can't afford to travel that far this month.
They like to tell people it's a free country, but how much law enforcement really knows anything about the Declaration of Independence, or the Constitution or any of it's ammendements? All they know is if they can get away with it, they do it. When we live in a society where that is the norm, sadly these once revered documents lose their power. They won't come to life off the page and enforce themselves. If "we the people" do not, they won't be. So, let us go out to Him outside the camp, bearing His reproach. For here we do not have a lasting city, but we are seeking the city which is to come. (Hebrews 13:13-14 NASB)
If anything this trial will set a precident for our country. There have already been "Hate Crime" laws put on the books and you may become a test case for the new legislation. My prayers are for you pastor Anderson. You are seeming the only person who truely stands for his constitutional rights. I think our constitution is under great attack if not even voided by the election of the current president who may not be a natural born American citizen.
I may not agree with all your views, but I'll keep you and your family in my thoughts...
I am very interested in seeing where all this leads. Please keep us updated. I was thinking about you guys the other day because it appears that what happened to you is not an isolated incident. A Canadian National was trying to return home via a checkpoint and was also detained for no reason. You can check it out via this linkhttp://forbiddenplanet.co.uk/blog/2009/candian-sf-writer-peter-watts-detained-and-beaten-at-us-border/Please be warned that there is profanity in that link. I have tried to find another link where the f-word is not used so much but can't seem to find one. If you are interested in reading what happened to him but don't want to go to that link, I can cut and paste for you and remove all the offensive words
Incredible! Thanks for sharing this.
Kick some tail Anderson!!!!
Upton Sinclair said it best, "It is difficult to get a man to understand something when his salary depends on his not understanding it." So goes the ever expanding public sector of our society we call government. I pray you receive justice. Our government has become what gay marriage has become to family, a perversion of the institution. Most Christians can tell that a man and a man does not equal a family but they can't tell that our present form of government doesn't equal what God gave us via the Constitution. It's just as hideous with effects far more reaching and damaging to people's lives. We strain at gnats and swallow camels. Keep us posted on your progress and may the God who loves justice shine on you.
